Yeah, I don't really know if I'm an actual "newb", because I've been...associating...with airsoft for about 4 years. But, I've still been to too poor to buy a gun besides my JG G36C and an Umarex "Tactical Force Combat" (G17) blowback pistol, which I lost. And a spring shotgun. Anyways, why are high end guns that cost more than $250 or so worth so much more? I've heard just as many stories of a high-end gun failing/breaking as I've heard of an MPEG failing/breaking...as well as stories of high-end guns being terrible or broken out of the box, and stories of MPEGs lasting for 2 years. What makes those expensive guns so much better?
